Buying and evaluation criteria for butter dishes
In order to find the perfect butter dish for you, we have worked out some buying criteria for butter dishes in the next text section that you should consider when buying a butter dish.
The criteria that will help you compare butter dishes include:
Cleaning a butter dish should be easy, as butter is very greasy. All butter dishes, without exception, can be cleaned by hand. However, if you don’t feel like washing your butter dish by hand, it should also be dishwasher safe.
However, this depends on the manufacturer and the material of the butter dish. You should therefore find out about this before you buy.
Before buying, you should think about the shape of your butter dish. Do you need extra support when opening it? Then the butter dish should have a firm handle. And if you want the box to fit on the side of the fridge door, you should also make sure it has a narrow shape.
There are butter dishes made of many different materials. Not every butter dish is suitable for the dishwasher or microwave. Even if sustainability is important to you, you should look at what material your butter dish should be made of.
Otherwise, you should choose a material with which you are already familiar or have already gained some experience.
Butter dishes come in a wide variety of colours and patterns. You can also choose between different shapes and materials. The lid may or may not have a handle.
If you want a stylish butter dish that looks good, you have to invest a little more. You should simply see which one you like best.
The base of a butter dish is also an important criterion when buying. The base can be flat, so that the butter can be easily cut in the tin. Or the bottom of the butter dish can be deeply shaped. The butter cannot slip in the box and can still be lifted out easily with a knife.
